We investigate the multiuser interference on the downlink channel (from base station to users) in cellular code-division multiple access (CDMA) and time-division multiple access (TDMA) systems. The results indicate that for the same total bandwidth occupancy and maximum number of users per cell, multiuser interference is approximately 10 dB higher in CDMA in fully-loaded cells. The implication of these results is that for the same total bandwidth and number of users per cell, TDMA gives… CONTINUE READING
